The San Antonio Astronomical Association members decided it would be fun to calculate when the International Space Station was overhead, find a big laser, and shoot that laser at the ISS when an astronaut was watching. Why? Because no one had ever done it. Because they could. Because they love space. Because they’ll always have that picture you see up there, which was snapped by astronaut Don Pettit, to prove that they touched space, at least with some photons.
